PARIS:  Eating nuts at least twice a week can slash the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by almost 17 percent, a new study suggests.

“Nuts are a good source of unsaturated fat and contain little saturated fat,” said study author Noushin Mohammadifard from Isfahan Cardiovascular Research Institute, Iran.

“They also have protein, minerals, vitamins, fibre, phytosterol, and polyphenols which benefit heart health. European and US studies have related nuts with cardiovascular protection but there is limited evidence from the Eastern Mediterranean Region,” Mohammadifard said.
